New York & Toronto - 'LA Rebellion: Creating a New Black Cinema' Starts In Your City This Week
0
LA Rebellion

New Yorkers as well as readers in Toronto, here's your chance to experience all the films in the traveling L.A. Rebellion series that we've been covering since fall 2011, in LA, where it all began.

The series was continues to travel the country, after just ending its run in Philadelphia, and began its run in Toronto today, and will begin in New York on Saturday, in both cities for 3 weeks. 

So those who live in New York an Toronto, you should take advantage of this rare oppotunity.

Representative works from UCLA Film & Television Archive's groundbreaking "L.A. Rebellion: Creating a New Black Cinema" exhibition will screen in select North American cities, showcasing new prints and restorations. A milestone in American cinema, the L.A. Rebellion began in the late 1960s when a number of promising African and African American students entered the UCLA School of Theater, Film, and Television. From that first class through the late 1980s these filmmakers forged a unique and sustained alternative Black cinema practice in the United States. Their frequent collaborations with other students of color and engagement with cinemas and concerns of the Third World created fascinating, provocative and visionary films that have earned an impressive array of awards and accolades at festivals around the world, in addition to blazing new paths into the commercial market.

In total, 36 titles will be screened.

Our writers on the west coast, Brandon Wilson and Nijla Mumin, reviewed several of the films, and interviewed talent, for S&A, and all those reviews were reposted over the last month, so check them out, and share your thoughts after seeing each film.
